Hilarious Vision Shows BBC Reporter Mobbed my Lemurs

This is the hilarious moment a BBC journalist is mobbed by a group of lemurs as he tries to do some filming at a zoo.

Alex Dunlop was trying to film a report at Banham Zoo in Norfolk but found himself unable to evade the attentions of the eager lemurs.

The video, shared on Twitter, shows the funny footage from the BBC Look East reporter’s struggle with the aggressive primates.

At the start of the clip the animals are resting on Dunlop’s shoulder as their comrades leap around the zoo.

The journalist’s efforts to report on the zoo’s annual stock take of animals were consistently thwarted by the excitable lemurs who bit his hand more than once.

On one attempt at filming the piece to camera he can only get out ‘I’m at the…’ before he is bitten, cursing the ‘little nipper’ on his shoulder.

The second time round he manages to get a full sentence out but is then bitten again, shouting: ‘You little ****’.

But he did not seem to mind too much, telling the camera: ‘I think this is one of the more enjoyable parts of the job, counting lemurs.’

He wrote on Twitter: ‘No lemurs were hurt in the making of this movie.’

The BBC shared the clip with the caption: ‘You know what they say about working with animals… Lemurs 1-0 BBC Look East reporter’.
